In case you missed it, Mattel has announced that they have exceeded the minimum number of pre-orders to go forward with the production of their new Masters of the Universe Classics Castle Grayskull playset! This is definitely a huge announcement and is sure to be a historic toy. Just so you know, the MOTUC Castle Grayskull is still up for pre-order right now if you’re wanting one.
Continue after the jump for the full announcement.
You did it! In a last minute rush, you fans rallied the troops and saved Castle Grayskull®. Not only were enough pre-orders placed to hit the minimum production goal needed to go into production, you went all He-Man® vs. Skeletor® on it and CRUSHED it!
At the end of next year, you’ll be the proud owner of the biggest, most iconic, most detailed, most accessorized piece of Masters of the Universe® real estate ever built! Pre-orders are now open again* and all pre-orders placed between the original start date of October 16th through January 4th at 9am PT will include a first-ever exclusive Masters of the Universe® Classics cross-sell poster. Not only that, but everyone who pre-orders will have the chance to vote on which MOTUC heroes and villains appear on new Rudy Obrero-designed packaging art (around spring 2013).
If you’ve already placed a pre-order, you’ll receive an email confirming your order is going through. This is only an order confirmation — you will NOT be charged until your Castle Grayskull® ships next year. And if you haven’t placed an order yet, click here now to stake your claim!
We realize you took a leap of faith by pre-ordering based only on a few drawings and a foam mockup. We’re honored and grateful, and know we have the best fans anywhere. The design team is hot to get started on a sculpt that will rock your MOTUC world. We’re hoping to reveal it around New York Toy Fair in February and will keep you updated every step of the way.
On behalf of Mattel and the MattyCollector.com team, a heartfelt “thank you” for making this happen!
Are you all excited as I am about this? I can’t wait to see the first prototype pictures!
